Hooded vest for fall! Pattern 95

Can you tell how jazzed she is with her new vest??  :)  I love it too. It's one of my all-time favorites in fact!  I made it in a few different types of fabric.  A sweatshirt knit, a medium weight jersey and an interlock.  It worked well in all three but I think I like the [...]

Kimono sleeve romper, perfect for solid fabrics!

This unisex kimono sleeve romper has a lot of different ways to finish it.  If you're sewing for an older child you can use a good, stretchy fabric and skip the snaps, just pull it up through the neck.  If you don't like the pockets, leave them off!!  I love them personally :) The fit [...]

Fringe romper : 90

  :Fringe romper pattern: I've been loving the fringe detail on clothes for so long I can't believe I haven't done it until now!!  This is a really easy detail to add to ANY pattern.  Top, pants, shorts, one-piece etc..
